There are basic guidelines for the use of Trulicity, however, you should always listen to your doctor. They may change your dose or customize your usage for your situation. Trulicity is typically prescribed along with a healthy diet and exercise.
Customarily, Trulicity is given as an under-the-skin injection once a week. It should be taken on the same day each week and at the same time. If you need to change your dosing day, make sure there are at least 3 days between doses.
After taking Trulicity, you may experience low blood sugar, which is also known as hypoglycemia. This will cause you to feel extremely hungry, anxious, dizzy, confused, and shaky.
The combination of Trulicity with other factors such as illness, exercise, stress, surgery, using alcohol, and skipping meals, can greatly affect your blood sugar levels. It’s important to share your lifestyle factors with your doctor to ensure that you are given the appropriate dose and schedule for Trulicity.
Trulicity comes in injection pens and prefilled syringes. Each one is a solo dose, meant for only one use. After each dose in a puncture-proof container, they must be thrown away and disposed of properly.
